Hi All: I am very pleased with the initial response of Toronto and Ontario teachers to the call for culminating activities. I realize that now is the time of year that many of you are starting to focus on culminating activities so I thank you all for starting this sharing portal . These lessons and activities have not any external vetting and it is hoped that you will sort through them and use portions or complete activities to support students DOING geography in all classes and destinations .
I compliment all the work done by both individual and collaborative teams of teachers . Any activity that we do is a process and we all add value to the activities as the move from class to class or year to year. Also it is part of a teacher culture to share and borrow from each other. However it is important that we give credit to those teachers who have taken the time and effort to create these activities and accompanying assessments. Please let us give credit where we can . Many of you will in-fact add value to these activities and I hope that you will reciprocate and send me any additions, modifications, or changes so that they can also be posted.
This is very much a process and hopefully this is just a start and through this portal we can build a true repository for Geography activities in Ontario.
